Pirates have seized the bounty in the first Electronichouse.com DIY Theaters of the Year contest.

AVS Forum member Paul Konold’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” theater cruised to a landslide victory.

Paul and his family can use the first place prize - a $500 Home Depot Gift Card - to add some new features to their theater.

Congratulations to Jason Klinke (DIYer Puts Theater PC to Work) and Bud Ketterl (DIYer Transforms Entire Basement), our second and third place winners, respectively. Jason will receive a $250 Home Depot Gift Card and Bud wins a $100 Home Depot Gift Card.

Electronic House would like to thank AVS Forum for helping make this contest a success. More than 45,000 votes were cast online during the month of October.
